Blepharoplasty (cosmetic eyelid surgery) is one of the most common cosmetic facial surgical procedures performed worldwide. However, it is also a procedure that can lead to complications which can alter a patient’s life and appearance. These problems are best avoided when surgery is performed by an eyelid specialist (an oculoplastic surgeon).
